Another AnthroCon is in the can! Today went much better than yesterday, I’m happy to say, even if it did involve a lot of running around trying to get stuff done on schedules and dealing with that one really annoying member of the Dorsai who refused to take yes for an answer when I was trying to clear out of the Dealer Room at the end of the day. (Normally I love, love, love the Dorsai, but for this gal, I’ll make an exception.)
I’ll do a detailed postmortem later, but sales-wise, this con was solid. Still a couple hundred down from my Best Con Ever, but way, way better than my last few have been. It was also a big success art-wise. I did some really elaborate original-media pieces for Spiritwolf and T’Chall that I was quite pleased with (and so were they, even better!), as well as a lot of stuff that was just plain fun. I also met a big ol’ pile of #TwitterPonies, found a bunch of new artists to follow on DA/FA, got some very cool pieces of art in my sketchbooks, and even won a piece of art by M.C.A. Hogarth from the art show.
I also introduced a few new readers to Suburban Jungle and got several comments along the lines of “OMG, you’re The Gneech! I love Suburban Jungle and/or NeverNever! It’s so great to meet you!” This, as you might guess, was a tremendous ego boost, something I can always use. ^.^ I also got some interesting ideas for theoretical “next projects,” none of which are beyond the “few doodles in the sketchbook” phase yet, but which I’m at least having fun thinking about.
The “Ponies vs. Daleks” portfolio was a nice success; I was also very surprised at how well my other prints were selling. If the #*%@!! printer hadn’t derped on me, both Sirfox and I could have made at least a few more sales along those lines. Granted, the profit point on prints is not real high for me, but the fact that someone wants a print of my work still jazzes me up something fierce.
Anyhow! It’s been a long drive home and I’m pretty dang tired, as you might guess, so I’ll call it a night here for now. I’ll post con art to my DA/FA accounts over the next few days as I get them scanned. All in all, I’d call AC 2012 a success.
